Tear Away is a non-woven general use backing. You can tear it in any direction and you won't need scissors. Use it on heavier, stable fabrics such as denim or twill. Pulling and tearing the backing will not distort the edge of your embroidery, as long as the fabric is sturdy. Once you tear the backing, there will be no remnants of the backing left around your embroidery.
